New Delhi [India], January 30 (ANI/PNN): India has one of the world's greatest and most embracing food industries. The rich cultural heritage and large agricultural sector have both played important roles in the development of the Indian food industry. The Indian food and beverage industry has grown by leaps and bounds over the last few decades.
Several food business operators (FBO) began to participate in the supply chain for a variety of roles such as selling, producing, processing, and distributing, in addition to manufacturing and cooking food in hotels and restaurants. There arose a situation in which these activities needed to be closely monitored and effectively managed in order to protect the health and welfare of consumers. For this purpose, laws, guidelines, and more importantly, a dedicated regulatory body were established under the Food Safety and Standards Act 2006.
The Food Standards and Safety Authority of India (FSSAI) is the regulatory and governing body for food safety in India. FBOs in India are required by law to obtain a license from the FSSAI. The license can be obtained and renewed online via the FSSAI portal. The license is thus required for the operation of food businesses in India, and obtaining it confers a number of benefits on these establishments.
Obtaining a license can provide legal benefits, foster goodwill, guarantee food safety, raise consumer awareness, and aid in business expansion. It also aids in the regulation, manufacture, storage, distribution, and sale of imported food. When an FBO is FSSAI registered, it is simple to raise funds from investors. The FSSAI logo appears on food products. Ensures that the food served to customers is of high quality. The FSSAI registration number displayed on the food premises indicates that the establishment meets hygiene and quality standards.
